Midsummer Moments!

It was a gorgeous day dancing at Art Fest with lots of sunshine and a fantastic crowd! Later that evening a few of us performed at the All Ages Vixen Variety Show in the Players Ballroom above Playmakers in the Alerus Center. We had an energetic crowd and the show was full of talented performers. Here is what is next for The Lovely Dozen as we move into midsummer:

June 15th: Amaya is traveling to Park Rapids, MN to dance in a Midsummer Festival at Brigid’s House. She will be participating in a few sets from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., and there will be various demos and activites from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

June 19th: Members of the Lovely Dozen will be performing in an all ages variety show at the American Legion in East Grand Forks, MN. The time we take the stage is TBA, but stayed tuned for details!

June 20th: We will be back at Level 10 so come out for some drink specials, great music, belly dancers and drag queens!

June 22nd: Members of the Lovely Dozen will be traveling to the Sleepy Hollow Midsummer’s Festival again this year – our stage time is TBA, but if you live in the area you’ll definitely want to come out for this one.

We will keep you updated if we are dancing at the Greater Grand Forks Fair and at the festivities in Town Square for the Fourth of July! In the meantime, enjoy the sunshine and shimmy on!

Let the Summer of Dance Begin!

We had a fantastic time learning from Ranya Reneé this past weekend. The workshops were insightful, informative and focused on Egyptian movement. We met a lot of great people and very talented dancers/musicians! Now we have a packed belly dance week ahead of us! On Wednesday morning we will be dancing with students in the ELL program through the Summer Performing Arts. Saturday morning we hit the stage at noon for the Grand Cities Art Fest. We will be performing for an hour so stick around to see an eclectic variety of group numbers, solos and duets. Then, at 8 p.m. we will be guest performers in the Vixen Variety Show at the Alerus Center in the Players Ballroom. The show is for all ages and admission is only $5. Shimmy on everyone!

Shimmying into Summer!

With World Bellydance Day 2013 behind us (though pics and video will likely be coming to you via Facebook or this website all summer!) we are once again readying ourselves for our Summer Circuit of performances! We’ve got some fun events coming up this year, some here in Grand Forks, and others throughout the region.  You can keep tabs on what we’ll be doing here and on Facebook – here’s just a preview of where we’ll be:

May 31st/June 1st: Relay for Life, we’ll be donating a performance onstage just after midnight, 12:30am to be exact – make sure to get your coffee that night so you can stay awake to catch the show!
